Note to ContractorsThe Nevada Department of Transportation’s mission is to keep Nevada safe and connected, and we want our team members, our families and our fellow Nevadans to remain safe and healthy. Our “Safe and Connected” motto not only reflects our priorities on our roadways, but it also extends to our relationship with team members as well as our partners throughout the state. That is why we have made some changes to continue business while still serving the public and those we work with.
Following Governor Steve Sisolak’s direction and public health guidelines, NDOT employees are taking health precautions and social distancing. The majority of NDOT team members are telecommuting. Non-essential NDOT business meetings and travel, as well as meetings where appropriate social distancing protocols cannot be maintained, are suspended. Team members and contractors are asked to utilize all practicable digital services such as e-mail, web conferencing and teleconferencing to virtually facilitate any necessary information exchange and meet the needs of our construction program. We must together work toward the goal of proactively promoting health and limiting any contact and associated opportunity for spread of disease. Our individual actions now will help ensure the health of Nevadans in the future.
It is important to note that in-person NDOT business services have been transferred digitally (nevadadot.com/online). Our offices are temporarily closed to the public and other partners, but we continue to provide contract services on-line and by phone.
If you call our main number at 775-888-7070 please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you have questions or need to get a hold of Contract Services please email email@example.com.
